Multifocal contact lenses are a fantastic option for people who already wear glasses or contact lenses and need a presbyopic correction.

Presbyobia refers to the condition when we age and our eyes lose their ability to focus on near objects. You might notice, in your 40’s that you start to hold small text further away from your eyes or increase font size. When you find your eyes are getting tired or your arms just aren’t long enough you may need reading glasses or multifocal lenses in your glasses.  Multifocal  spectacle lenses allow different powers in different zones of the lens to focus on different distances.  If you already wear glasses for distance correction the multifocal lenses will help you see both distance and close.

Multifocal contact lenses are specialised contact lenses also give you the ability to focus on multiple distances. These products now come in a variety of more breathable high oxygen materials, and in daily and monthly products.

Why wear multifocal contact lenses

Multifocal contact lenses are a great option for contact lens wearers who need additional near vision correction and multifocal glasses wearers who would like the freedom of wearing contact lenses.

Why wear contact lenses

Contact lenses provide you with a full field of view and have less distortion and reflections than glasses.

Some people chose to wear contact lenses most of the time, others chose to wear them during certain activities like sport and exercise or on weekends.
